    Easily their poorest album, the whole thing just sounds rushed and tossed off...why, Enon, why??

    unfortunatly the fun and tough songwriting talents of shmersal are pushed aside as yasuda gets too much front time. Comparable to the rest of the Enon full releases, Hocus-Pocus is a step backward.

    Sadistically fun. [#60, p.97]

    Hocus Pocus is comprised of simple, beautiful songs, humbly Enon with all aspects of their trademark bite of irony, sarcasm, fondness and regret. [#5, p.101]

    Yasuda provides most of the brightest moments with a new wave/elecro style that wrings real delight from revelling in pop art/trash. [Oct 2003, p.116]
